Romance author Nicole Martin loves her
house located on Zane Patrick’s estate. It has everything
she could ever want, privacy, security, and a gorgeous
neighbor who stirs her author’s imagination, among other
things. But when two men claiming to be FBI agents start
harassing Nicky for information on Zane who they claim is a
vampire of all things, Nicky decides it might be time to get
to know her neighbor better.
Vampire hunters out to get him is only
one of Zane’s problems. He has possession of a mysterious
ruby once belonging to Catherine the Great, a prize so
priceless, so steeped in myth and legend, that people are
willing to kill for it. Not to mention Zane’s most pressing
issue: Nicky. Every time the luscious author starts to
write a sex scene, he sees it in his mind. As Zane and
Nicky delve into the mystery of what the supposed agents are
after, their attraction for one another grows. What first
appeared to be simple desire between the two may, in fact,
be so much more.
Written in the Ruby is
one of those books that makes me wish I could put myself in
the heroine’s place. It’s engaging and sensual with a
fast-paced plot and a hero who is to-die-for.
While I cannot be Nicole, I did like
her immensely. She’s clever, intelligent, and has a
friendly attitude that made me fond of her. Zane is the
kind of vampire that makes you want to offer yourself up for
a bite. He’s strong, sexy, and protective of his loved
ones. What more can you ask for? Erotic love scenes and
action that will have you on the edge of your seat? Check.
Ravyn Wilde dishes both out in spades, to my everlasting
For those like myself who are new to
Ms. Wilde’s Vampire Sentinel series, Written in the
Ruby stands on its own. However, I found the book
so enthralling that I will definitely be going back to read
the first book, Let Them Eat Cake, whose characters
were mentioned in passing in Written in the Ruby.
I absolutely adored this book and will be on the lookout for
more of Ms. Wilde’s Vampire Sentinel books in the future.
